Abstract (en)

The method involves linking a real identity and a virtual identity of a subscriber on a side of a switching equipment. Another virtual identity is provided under utilization of the link. A communication connection is set between the subscriber and another subscriber under utilization of the virtual identities. The communication connection is set partially outside a communication platform over a telecommunication network, where the latter virtual identity is non-temporary between the subscribers. Independent claims are also included for the following: (1) a network node in a communication network, which is partially involved to set up a communication connection for exchange of speech and/or data between subscribers (2) a terminal for utilization in the communication network for exchange of speech and/or data between subscribers.

Abstract (de)

Die vorliegende Erfindung betrifft ein Verfahren zum Aufbau einer Kommunikationsverbindung zum Austausch von Sprache und/oder Daten zwischen Teilnehmern von Chaträumen insbesondere in einer Internet-3D-Infrastruktur wie beispielsweise "Second Life". Nachteilig beim Stand der Technik ist, dass eine Kommunikation zwischen den Teilnehmern unter Nutzung einer virtuellen Identität nur über die, den Chatraum bereitstellende, Kommunikationsplatform erfolgen kann. Eine kommunikationverbindung von der realen Identität und die virtuelle Identität und von der virtuellen Identität an die reale Identität ist bisher nicht möglich. Dieser Nachteil wird dadurch überwunden, dass die reale Identität in einer Vermittlungseinrichtung eines Telekommunikationsnetzes mit einer virtuellen Identität seitens einer, einen Chatraum bereitstellenden, Kommunikationsplatform verknüpft wird, so dass unter Nutzung der virtuellen Identität eine Kommunikationsverbindung im Telekommunikationsnetz aufgebaut werden kann.
